Edsel Ford High School

#TheRealDeaborn Peace March

Students from Edsel Ford, Dearborn, Fordson, and Divine Child High School  have organized an event they hope will bring people together to show the diversity and unity of Dearborn, they are calling it #TheRealDeaborn Peace March.

#TheRealDeaborn Peace March will celebrate Dearborn’s historic diversity, rich culture, and united community. Community members are invited to gather on January 18, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, at the corner of Greenfield Road and Michigan Avenue in Dearborn to take part in a peaceful three-quarter of a mile march beginning at noon. Those participating will proceed west on Michigan Avenue to the new City of Dearborn Administration building located at 16901 Michigan Ave. 

The group is hoping the approximately one hour long event will draw hundreds of community members young and old. Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent, Dearborn Mayor O’Reilly, and several other prominent members of the community are already planning on attending. The march will conclude with a brief ceremony featuring student comments.
